by Dave Dymnent

Mix, Spring 2001

Artist and author Dave Dyment sits down with artist John Marriott to discuss his works, especially as part of his enterprise, Art Courtesy Services, and his performance art campaign, Art That Says Hello. Marriott's art often explores etiquette and human connections to community and physical space, and is sometimes influenced by the ideas and works of Jane Jacobs.

Marriott also discusses his work for Regina, curated by Timothy Long, and other groups working in similar circles in his base city of Toronto, such as Instant Coffee and "off/site@Toronto".
